The Visitor Center Museum is located inside the 1858 Light Keepers' house adjacent to the lighthouse.

Five years in the making and first opened to visitors in 2002, the Center is staffed by local volunteers who are eager to share their knowledge of the Lighthouse, its history, and a myriad of local stories of times gone by, and of today.
